I have been try to finish this box for a couple of weeks. The finish on the lid just didn’t suit me so I sanded it out a couple of times with up to 1000 grit and re-varnished it but it still picked up dust or something. Finally I thinned the poly with about 40% paint thinner and applied the finish with a paper towel. A couple of coats like that and the finish finally looked good.
Lid and drawer fronts are Flame Box Elder (lid with natural bark edge). Front and back of the carcass are blue BKP and sides are some contrasting brown wood from the scrap pile (could be anything). Finger joints could have been better but my jig was off. That has now been corrected.
Box is 14” wide, 8” deep and 11” tall
